Dr. Greg DeLange and the Estetica Institute of the Palm Beaches announce the addition of CoolSculpting as an option for patients interested in a non-invasive procedure to remove unwanted fat in a safe and effective way.
CoolSculpting is an FDA-cleared process that involves targeting fat cells with temperature instead of a scalpel. This unique, non-invasive process developed by Harvard University scientists targets the fat cells only, leaving healthy cells behind. During the treatment, the fat cells are crystallized and then die, allowing the body to eliminate them naturally.
Many patients see immediate results, but then over time as the fat cells are expelled from the body patients see an ongoing improvement. Coupled with diet and exercise, the results should stabilize, but patients may choose to undergo more procedures in consultation with their doctor.
The treatment takes about an hour, and easily fits into a patient’s daily routine. Unlike more invasive surgical procedures, there is very little down time for the procedure and no recovery time.
Dr. Greg DeLange, medical director of Estetica Institute of the Palm Beaches, has developed a reputation as one of South Florida’s elite cosmetic surgeons. He is a graduate of the University of Miami Medical School and completed his surgical residency at the University of Texas. He is a member of the American Board of Plastic Surgery and has been a presenter at Southeastern Society of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeons.
At the Estetica institute, patients have a wide variety of surgical options to enhance their personal appearance including breast augmentation, liposuctions, and tummy tucks. The Estetica Medi-Spa offers less invasive possibilities like chemical peels, laser hair removal, and injectables like Botox and fillers.
